Support For Communities That Rely On Tourism

We will help people living in communities that rely on tourism get the infrastructure their communities need.

Tourism in Canada is strong and growing. Last year, Canadian communities of all sizes welcomed more than 21 million international visitors, supporting local economies and good, middle class jobs.

At the same time, communities that see a big influx of visitors can sometimes find it hard to keep up with local needs – like adequate housing and community spaces.

To help these communities better serve their residents, we will build on the new Federal Tourism Growth Strategy and move forward with a Tourism Community Infrastructure Fund to invest $100 million in the local needs of communities that rely on tourism, over the next four years. These funds will be delivered and managed through regional economic development agencies.
